Hey dummies! These recaps are a day late because of Titanfall. Because I played Titanfall for the first time yesterday. A lot. I know the feelings toward the game have been more than a little mixed here in the Dtoid community but I for one am in love.

It's been a long time since I've gotten into a shooter, let alone a multiplayer only competitive shooter but Titanfall just offers everything I could want from such a game. You don't have to play obsessively to feel like you're actually competing with other players. You also don't immediately die every two seconds, and best of all, you have a giant ass mech to pilot!

The game just does such a great job of making you feel like a complete badass as well. There's nothing quite like running a long a wall and jumping between buildings only to jump from one, land on an enemy mech, and then hijack his shit and destroy the enemy team!

The team behind the game has also done a great job of crafting a world that feels like Halo meets COD but somehow original all at the same time. Having your commanding officer pop up on your screen to let you know that your titan will be ready soon really gets you immersed in the world.

I could go on and on but really all you need to know is that this is a fantastic shootman game that has giant punching mechs that shoot rockets. I'm going to be preordering this on my next paycheck and I'm gonna go play some more of it right now. If you are also playing feel free to shoot me an Origin invite, crackityjones205

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

The heel-turn

Last week, in the quick posts of Destructoid's community, we saw the rise and fall of community manager Wesley J. Russow. He rose to prominence with his immutable power, only to see it come crashing down as the working class clambered beneath him and tore him down. Truly, the life and times of Westopher G. Raggamuffins was a lesson in live fast, burn hot, crash spectacularly.

Wes went from community darling to lovable despot over the course of a few days. It was a thing of beauty to behold. Truly, nothing is better to witness than a real-life heel turn. Wrestling is nothing without these terms after all. A "Face" is a good guy wrestler who fights the man, stands up for the little guy, and fights fairly while still winning. A "Heel", on the other hand, is a despicable, dastardly villain or even anti-hero. I loved Kurt Angle's antics as this gold medal Olympic winner turned wrestler who wasn't necessarily as likable as his gold medals imply. I loved hating that guy! A good heel is fun to hate, and there's nothing quite like the gasp of shock when watching the turn, when a face uses dirty tricks and turns into a heel.

Let me ask you this: is Kratos a hero? Before we see Kratos return in what I'd call Dad of War, let's not forget Kratos’ sordid past as a hero. In the first game, it was a revenge tale. It was a story of a mythical Spartan warrior who wanted revenge on the God of War who betrayed him. But as the series went on, it became a story about the lengths Kratos would go to justify his vendetta against people who wronged him. He would literally destroy the world just to destroy his enemies. Sure, we played as him, and we were taken on a ride, but would you really put your bet behind him and say, "Yeah, look at that hero!"

This month's Bloggers Wanted is about your favorite heel-turns or anti-heroes (in case a heel turn is too specific). Do you like it when Ryu turns into Evil Ryu? Or maybe you like Injustice, with its built in heel-turn Superman? I won't claim to understand the time line of Revolver Ocelot between Snake Eater and Guns of the Patriots, but I love that knucklehead.

To participate, just start a blog in our community section and title it "Heel-turn: [your blog title here]." Write to your heart's content, and if its up to snuff, you'll see your stuff published on the front page! Just remember, you're telling us about your favorite heel-turns and anti-heroes, not becoming one yourself, like Wes. Rest in spaghetti, never forghetti.
